12 Months to a Healthier You: Week 29 Check-in

12-Months-to-a-Healthier-You-5-500x800
Are you joining us for the 12 Months to a Healthier You Challenge? If so, it’s time for our weekly check-in to post our progress.

July’s Challenge:

We’re focusing on developing the habit reading more. I grow and learn so much through the books I read — which is why I included this as part of the 12 Months to a Healthier You challenge. I think filling our mind with good things can transform our whole life — from the inside out.

New to this challenge? Read more details on the plan for this year here.

My Reading Challenge for July

I’m hoping to read at least 20 books in July.

I’m also hoping to keep up with January’s habit of exercising at least 4-5 times every week, February’s goal of eating a big salad at least six times a week, March’s goal of drinking 8 glasses of water a day, April’s goal of cutting back on sugar, May’s goal of getting at least 7.5 hours of sleep every night, and June’s goal of sticking with my morning routine

This Week’s Progress:

I read 4 books last week — yay! That’s progress over last week’s 2 books. And since we’re taking a roadtrip this week, I’m hopeful that I’ll have time to read even more. We’ll see!

I hit my water goals six of the days, ate a salad six days, got around 8 hours of sleep almost every single night (woot!), did a fairly good job of sticking with my morning routine, exercised 4 times, and had dessert once. I’m so encouraged with how these challenges are actually turning into true habits for me — and hopefully lifelong changes!
